Seeing wild animals in freedom is one of the best experiences in life and with the growing popularity of nature and ecological tourism it is an increasingly possible reality. According to the "Protected Planet for Latin America and the Caribbean 2020" report, coordinated by RedParques and supported by the United Nations, the region has more than 8.8 million square kilometers of protected areas , both maritime and terrestrial.
In fact, despite the great challenges, the report ensures that: "Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is the most protected region in the world, in terms of land coverage (without considering the polar region). This figure is equivalent to 21.4% of the total area protected by LAC (24% of land areas and 19% of marine and coastal areas), a coverage greater than the total area of Brazil or the sum of the continental territories of Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Colombia , Bolivia and Paraguay".
